Superhot now available on Xbox One

by: Jeremy -

Color me jealous! Xbox One owners can now download the amazing-looking Superhot from the Xbox Live Marketplace. If you aren’t familiar with what it is, please allow me to introduce you to one of the coolest shooters I have ever seen.

Superhot is a completely different breed of shooter. Every stage starts you off in the same situation: completely outnumbered and outgunned and armed with nothing more than a glass bottle. However, as bleak as that situation sounds, you do have a major advantage over your enemies: time is on your side. Time inside the game will only progress when you make a move. This means that as long as you are standing still, everything in the world around you will stand still as well. Bullets will freeze in mid-air and your enemies will all be halted in their tracks.

This gives you a chance to survey the land and make precise, calculated moves against your enemies. You can disarm them, dodge their gunfire... you name it. Once you complete a scenario, which means taking out all of your enemies, everything gets played back to you in real time, resulting in an amazing video of one badass action scene. You really have to see it in action to full understand, and you can do just that in the launch trailer below.
